|No Danger from This Crack|
|No Danger from Filled Crack|
However, even I have limits to my scientific curiosity about cycling conditions. Lately, the City of Bedford has been digging out cracks on some of the streets along my commute route. Some of these cracks run in the direction of travel. Scientific curiosity has caused me to wonder if these not-yet-repaired cracks might represent a diversion fall danger to cyclists. We're not talking about any danger to someone riding on wide tires, but on the narrower tires used on road bikes. What's more, those cracks are not like railroad tracks, but just wide enough to leave the question in doubt. The cracks below are just about the same width as the rim on a road bike. My 28c tires are PROBABLY OK. 23c? Who knows?
